  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I must admit that when I googled "synarchist" from his first post, my loon-detector gave a bit of a wobble. Thank you for clarifying and confirming....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    I call "faceless EU bureaucrat" fallacy again!...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Have done no research into how reliable a source this is, but was shared by an old friend who works in the finance industry in London. We may experience a brief moment of schadenfreude at the discomfort of the bankers,...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Final thought, then I think I'm out for the day: A friend sent me a movie suggestion today, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels -- I haven't watched it in quite some time, but contains brilliant work by Michael Cain and Steve Martin...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    With respect to Greg, he seems to still be occupying the mindset that this result somehow gives us leverage with the EU. This seems counter-intuitive and just plain wrong. We have just pissed any EU goodwill up against the wall,...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    See my comment @85. Moving quickly may be in the long term interests of UK....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    If the UK tries this bait-and-switchy kind of move, will the EU have to accept the change of decision to remain, or can we be forcibly ejected at that point? And if it does work, I would imagine next round...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Clusterfuck doesn't even begin to describe it. That might just be the best one line analysis of the whole sodding mess that I've seen all day. (I am personally concerned where NI is going in a big way, we're like...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    My suspicion is that Galdruxian is trolling by invoking Godwin, without actually using the word "Nazi". Ho hum....
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Despite my absolute certainty that I am doing nothing but throwing snacks under the bridge... You do realize that no matter how many times you use the word fascist in one post you're still talking bollocks, and doing nothing but...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Another thought in terms of playing the waiting game: Financial institutions like stability and predictability; the longer the UK delays on instigating or ignoring the referendum result, the more uncertainty; the more uncertainty the more chance that the financial sector...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    No. I don't think it wasn't a good reason, I know it wasn't a good reason. Facts and opinions are not equal. Should we just throw our hands up and say that all political parties who don't pander to the...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    With respect to the "delay article 50" plan: It still baffles me that people believe that the EU will continue to allow the UK to play political games in the current climate. Without going and checking the numbers (although they...
  • Commented on "Tomorrow belongs to me"
    Everyone who voted "leave" doubtless had a real reason to vote "leave" (and the same for "remain"), but that doesn't mean that it was a good reason....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    That's the joy and wonder of our modern connected world, isn't it? Rather than opening our minds to opposing view points, we can safely cocoon ourselves within an echo chamber of our own design....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    He needs to get the *legal* EU migrant numbers down (since that's the lightning rod in this). ... it just needs to be seen to be happening Given that it's already been determined that many UK citizens have a massively...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Apologies. Missed your entry to the competition, hadn't been tracking that thread, creative juices occupied elsewhere at the mo and it just hadn't piqued my interest. Thoroughly enjoyed what you did there though. Additional commentary here most illuminating....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    OK. I think I follow your complaint that security is excessive and inconvenient, and that you believe Mayhem was lucky in avoiding the hassle. However, Mayhem opened his commant @644 with: You're conflating the Security Theatre imposed by our side...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    That is rather the problem with extremism of many sorts: It seems rather comical to rational people, and then suddenly you find that there are a lot less rational people in the world than you thought....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Struggling to understand how what you're saying here either negates what Mayhem said @644, or points the finger of blame at the EU for your travel woes. Are you wandering into wild speculation and conspiracy theory territory, by suggesting that...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Seconded. Though I was hoping for for something a bit more original as a grand come back....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I'd also just like to say thanks to Charlie for providing a space where (mostly) civility and sanity have prevailed while discussing the EU referendum. Everywhere else I've encountered this debate on line has managed a brief period of civil...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    The problem is that even with all of the facts and figures, there isn't really a choice that is all good for the UK. Leaving carries horrendous risks with no guarantee that we, the plebs in the street, will ever...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Some of this you could not make up, nor want to... See my comment @483....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    I suspect you're thinking of Charles Haughey? A man who brought the phrase "slimy political weasel" into disrepute....
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Wish I could report that those "tribal maps" we're no longer possible (everyone who grows up in Northern Ireland carries one in their head -- and it's a matter of practical safety in many cases). NI has made progress, but...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Sticking with the NI and humourous links themes (very NI specific, but some nice broadsides at the "leave" campaign too: http://theulsterfry.com/featured/the-eu-referendum-an-ulster-fry-guide/...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Definitions of UK vs Britain? There's only one way to be sure! Fight!! (Apologies, I couldn't resist that, and please, please, please let's not disappear down the rabbit hole of what the UK is versus Britain. Please?)...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    Some time ago I decided that there are only two categories that actually matter: People who are not arseholes, and people who are. Everything else (including, but not limited to, skin colour, place-of-birth, parentage, sexual orientation, religious or political affiliation,...
  • Commented on The unspeakable truth
    What EC said @501. Your criticism of the EU bending over for big business is probably fair, but how does voting "leave" change this in any way, or change the business-friendly public-hostile proclivities of our own career politicians? Again, the...
